I cooked my recipe in the crock pot for 9 hours and the meat wasn't quite at the ""falling off the bone""-stage. I would recommend leaving extra time for the meat to cook. I ended up leaving it on overnight and then took it to work the next day for lunch. The flavors in the broth are really great though.
